Session: Feeling stressed at work? Strategies to prevent burn-out and stay engaged.
Our work life often brings sleepless nights, non-stop worry, feeling tired and lacking energy. Trying to meet work demands leaves us feeling frustrated, overwhelmed and exhausted. Over time, this leads to burnout which proves expensive for yourself and your organization. Damaged health affects your productivity and the bottom line. How can we solve the problem of energy running out? And better cope with the pressure, demands and expectations of our professional lives?
There are many symptoms of impending burnout, for example, sleep issues, worrying, feeling undervalued at work. Some employees doubt their effectiveness and competence. These symptoms often stem from work overload, insufficient reward, and conflicting values among others. Addressing the root causes head-on helps us gain energy, think clearer, and become more committed and engaged at work. Burnout and the factors that cause it are systemic and organizations should address them at an institutional level. But there are also concrete strategies every employee and people manager can use.
